Stagira is a Greek village lying on a picturesque plateau on the Chalcidice peninsula, and standing at the foot of the Argirolofos hill. The village is chiefly known for being the birthplace of Aristotle, and a beautiful statue of him stands in the village. However, Aristotle was actually born a few kilometres north from the village, in the ancient city of Stageira (near the city now called Olympias).
The present-day village has approximately 500 inhabitants, but including the neighbouring village of Stratoniki, with which Stagira virtually merges, the population increases to around 1500. The central church was built in 1814.
